An Unfamiliar Facet of Birmingham Discovered
Monday 15 June 2015

Birmingham played host to a select group of leading European nano-scientists this week, who travelled from Tampere, Helsinki, Iceland, Leuven, Juelich, Genoa, Johnson Matthey and the National Physical Laboratory for the first European Workshop on Fundamental Aspects of Clusters for Emerging Technology (FACET). Considerable progress was reported in both experimental and theoretical studies of the atomic structure of size-selected clusters as well as emerging applications in catalysis, metrology and biomedicine. Many fruitful discussions took place and delegates were delighted to discover just how green Birmingham is: the photo was taken beside the lake which is hidden behind the Conference Park and entered via the Winterbourne Botanical Garden (a heron was in attendance). Did you know that Birmingham is included in the Rough Guideā€™s Top 10 Cities in the World to visit?
